Will it be a teahouse? A pouting house? A potting shed? A guest cottage? A mini-museum? Who knows! All we know is that the old studio has now been sliced. About 2/3rds of the historic structure that enclosed so many dance parties is gone - what remains will become something as yet unknown.
The part that remains includes the loft - the original nest was behind the woven honeysuckle vines. There are none quite so big in dandyland now. I thought that it was a very romantic place to sleep, even, and perhaps partly because, snow used to blow in through the cracks onto the feather comforters. I actually used that as a courting gambit. Ah youth!
Slowly it is becoming an interesting place again...
